Retailing is a major sector of the Australian economy.  Globally, retailing is one of the fastest growth areas for employment.  In recent years, retailers have had to deal with increased levels of competition, the growth of the internet, new forms of technology and consumers who are looking for better value together with higher quality service.  As a result, retailers require managers with the necessary skills to tackle and meet those challenges.
